Sat 8/2: DRC Cross Country Relay race + extra miles for a total of 8 7.72mi
Saturday morning, a few of us met up at the DRC clubhouse to run to Norbuck Park for the Cross Country Relay Race. Brandon and I met up with Michael at the race, we each ran a 2-mile leg and then we ran back to the clubhouse (taking a slight shortcut due to time constraints). Thankfully, my leg was feeling pretty good!
We didn't have time to make shirts like last year, so we all wore the shirts from this year's Rock and Roll Half Marathon.
The race was really fun! Team Fall Risk did pretty well.
I have done that Norbuck Park loop so many times over the summer that at least I knew what to expect this year! I was able to keep a faster pace than I thought I would be able to do. After I got home, I put on compression socks and foam rolled. I think this helped, my leg is feeling good today (knock on wood).
This morning, Michael and I cross-trained by riding our bikes on the White Rock Creek Trail. I forget what a good workout biking is! My legs are definitely feeling it, but in a different way than running.
This week's plans:
Sun 8/3: Bike ride 8.56 mi, 45:24
Mon 8/4: Base/easy 30 min run; hot yoga (60 min)
Tues 8/5: Base/easy 50 min run
Wed 8/6: Rest (getting a sports massage)
Thurs 8/7: Recovery 45 min run; lower body strength training
Fri 8/8: Base/easy 50 min run
Sat 8/9: 9 miles long
I also started a 30-day plank challenge on the first, by August 30th I'll (supposedly) be able to hold a plank for 5 minutes!
